2 Day Raku Workshop – Make, Glaze and Fire in August

1st August and 15th August — starts 10:00am
Join us in another of our two day raku workshop that uses a variety of hand building techniques to take you from raw clay to finished, fired, glazed work ready for you to take home.

This fun workshop, led by local ceramicists Richard Jeffery and Jayne Cunliffe, is suitable for absolute beginners, or for those with some ceramics experience who want to see the raku process through from start to finish.

Day One – Sunday 1/8/21
Make a number of pieces using basic hand building techniques: slab building (making work from flat slabs of clay, rolled out like pastry), pics pots and coiling – an ancient technique allowing you to build up simple or complex shapes by adding strips of clay. You can expect to make some simple vases, or if you are feeling adventurous a box form.

At the end of this session, we dry and biscuit fire your work to make it strong enough for glazing and raku firing.

Day Two – Sunday 15/8/21
Help prepare and mix a variety of glazes to decorate your work in whichever way you choose. Apply glazes to your work and help fire it in a raku kiln.
The raku firing is the culmination of this workshop – helping load the kiln, smoking and washing your beautiful pots (!) ready to take home…

Cost: Two days £65 plus £20 materials and kiln costs per person (clay, glazes, bisque and raku firing), payable on booking. Maximum 8 students (minimum 4).
